While shopping for our next house, we came up with a list of things that were absolutely necessary for us to consider a house, as well as a list of not necessary, but totally a plus if the house has it kind of thing!
Here's the list!
.5 acre - 1.5 acre
Open kitchen (or a kitchen that had potential to be open)
Large dining space
Nice, safe neighborhood
Good school district (I'm a planner, what can I say?! ha!!)
